Benjamin Pavard is set to leave Bayern Munich this summer, and the Bavarians are currently looking for a replacement for the Frenchman.

Manchester City's Kyle Walker is said to be Bayern's preferred candidate, but with the treble winners fighting to keep the England international, Bayern may have to look elsewhere.

According to Sport Bild, Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta is on Bayern's shortlist as a possible alternative to Walker.

The Spaniard, who has one year left on his current contract, was an important player during Thomas Tuchel's tenure at Chelsea.

Azpilicueta wasn't a regular starter last season, but still made 32 appearances for the Blues.
